Blissfields Festival-More Acts Announced

Blissfields festival is hot on the tail of its last announcement, now confirming the shambolic blues punks Jim Jones Review and more.

Blissfields is hot on the tail of its last announcement, now confirming the shambolic blues punks Jim Jones Review, LA surf poppers with an African slant Fools Gold, euphoric Swedish synth duo The Sound Of Arrows, and harrowing vocalist and violinist Marques Toliver.

The first winner of the festival’s Road To Blissfields competition, Bear Cavalry, is also confirmed, alongside The Chapman Family, Flashguns, Kid Adrift, and a host of DJ names including Boule, Will Chump and MASS_IVe.

For the first time, Blissfields will be opening its boards to comedic turns, and can now unveil the first ever comedians to be performing at the summer festival. Acts include Stevie Gray, Own Niblock, Michael Kossew and Ruth E Cockburn. More still to be announced.

They all join a swelling line-up which marks the most beautifully programmed Blissfields Festival yet.

With the return of the acclaimed Hidden Hedge and unveiling of the brand new Blisscotheque, which will feature the cream of local DJ talent and some very special guests courtesy of Future Disco, ravers will be uncovering treats at every turn, while younger visitors of the festival will also find a whole new world of wonders and treats in store.

Blissfields boasts a wonderfully inclusive atmosphere in a small setting, without corners cut in terms of programming. With cafés, stalls, workshops, installations, a family camping area and four stages of live music, it truly is a fully formed British festival, scaled down for an intimate audience.
